Georgia ESSA State Plan Released

Georgia has released the draft of its state plan responsive to the Every Student Succeeds Act, the replacement for the federal law commonly known as No Child Left Behind.

The draft is being posted publicly to give all interested stakeholders time to review the plan and provide their feedback. The public-comment period will run for 30 days, closing on July 14, 2017.

“I deeply appreciate the involvement of many of Georgia’s teachers, parents, school and district representatives, and community members in the ESSA public feedback process,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “I want to ask and encourage everyone who has already been involved to stay engaged with us as this work continues, and for anyone who has not yet been involved, I would ask you to be a part of the public review process moving forward. We can’t create a plan that serves students well unless we’re all working together.”
